Preview: Alfreton Town v Curzon Ashton

Monday Aug 13, 2018

Next up for the Reds sees the visit of Curzon Ashton to the Impact Arena in the National League North tomorrow night, kick off is 7.45pm. 

Alfreton picked up an impressive 2-1 success at Bootham Crescent against York City on Saturday in a fantastic display which put the Brackley defeat prior to that, firmly in the background.

Goals from Tom Denton and Curtis Bateson in the space of two minutes silenced the partisan home faithful, Langstaff would pull one back mid-way through the second half, but the Reds dug in and superb defending as well as looking dangerous on the attack, especially in the first half; ensured the perfect reaction and a first win of the season for the Reds.

We will be looking for back to back wins for the first time this season, with Curzon posing the next challenge; as we look to increase the momentum in this early portion of the season.  

The Nash sit 18th in the table, seven places below us but with just one point the difference. Curzon have picked up one win and two defeats in their first three fixtures of the campaign.  The visitors have lost their last two league games in a row and haven't scored in those two, but won their last away outing, 2-1 at Darlington on the opening day. 

Last season’s top goal scorer for the Nash, Niall Cummins will be unavailable as he continues to recover from a knee injury sustained at the end of the last campaign.

Boss Billy Heath will have to assess the fitness of Martin Riley and Bobby Johnson; new signing Josh Gowling could be in contention for his debut after signing on a month's loan from Torquay. 

The Reds last home outing was on the opening day as we drew 3-3 with Kidderminster Harriers.
